    *Ads Disappear After 100 Posts*
    I just found some dude posting child pornography on 4chan. What should I do? I heard that some people tell FBI if they find child pornography from internet, should I tell FBI?

    1) That's not exactly a rare thing

    2) The anonymous nature of 4chan would make it very hard to track the person down.

    My advice? Forget about it, and think to yourself "God, there are some fucked up people in the world". It's really the only practical thing you can do.

    I think it´s not very hard for FBI to track internet messages down, no matter how anonymous they are...

    But yeah...
    I better let it be.

    There's nothing you can do if we're talking about 4chan, especially /b/. The only thing you can do is report the thread so that a moderator can delete it. I bet the authorities are aware of what some of the users post on 4chan due to the amount of illegal content that is posted. If they could do something they would, but unfortunately they can't.

    4chan has child porn on it every day. It is impossible for law enforcement to be even close in keeping track of or stopping all the child porn online. It is easy to block your IP address, and the FBI really can't do much if individuals are posting from outside the United States. The FBI rarely goes after anyone unless they are uploading/sharing a lot of it, and basically never goes after viewers because of how it can be claimed that the title of files were misleading or the pictures were supposedly "fake" etc. Just forget about it and realize that the internet is a very "free" place in terms of its content, so to speak. The moderators on 4chan know what is posted, you aren't going to be able to do anything. I am sure the FBI knows about the child porn on 4chan as it is there daily and there have been plenty of news reports on fox news and such about it, but it is still there daily.

    Why don't you just stay away from the kind of sites that you find child porn on in the first place. Let's be honest here: child porn is simply not going to innocently find you without you making a lot of fairly specific decisions first.

    You most likely by now have a fairly good ability to instantly sense that a site my be potentially shaded from the moment that you first see it.

    And don't both telling the FBI. It's certainly not going to be something that they are not already aware of.

    first of all, don't save it. that's the stupidest thing you could do. even if you think you're doing the right thing by emailing it to the fbi or something

    second, report it to a mod on 4chan or any other site you find it on

    third, if you're sure it's going to be there for a while (not like 4chan where it's gone 2 hours later), then think about reporting it to the proper authorities so as not to send them on a wild goose chase or anything.

    personally, i'd let it be, and just block it out, cos' you have to deal with people who are sick out there, they'll get found out, i'm sure.

    DON'T SAVE IT! A teacher who saved a picture as proof of what a child was doing got locked up here simply because she showed it to the principle. Report it to the bourd staff, so it can be taken down, but not much else you can do.
